February 2009 - WANT: Desire, need, passion and want

Desire, need, passion and want.
Are all of these related?
Does one influence the others?
Can they all be rolled up under one common concept?

I certainly wish I had all the answers.

The 3 tenets I use as a base are trust, passion and caring.
So why isn't want in there? Good question.

I propose that living life based on these three ends up providing one with what they desire, need and want. Passion is already included.

Back in July 2008, zen habits asked the question

What are your top 3 life goals?

It was amazing what people responded. The word "want" shows up a number of times, as well as desire, need and passion. Perhaps we all have a common thread on this one. Perhaps each of these DOES effect the others.

I think that all of these can be rolled up under the concept, of having our time here have "meaning". If these are not part of us, then we are simply "here". We are not participating. Participation is an essential of getting what we want and giving what we have meaning.

Whoa! Sorry about jumping into the deep end. Back to "he who dies with the most toys wins."

I wonder how many others have life goals or tenets upon which their time here is based?

Isn't wonder a wonderful thing?


P.S. Happy Valentines Day to all of you who celebrate it.
